Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Caring for Your Bicycle

Today's Free App of the Day is Caring For Your Bicycle
Originally $2.99

This is a very basic app on maintaining one's bicycle. The main complaint  is that it's too basic. But the developer keeps updating it, so it may be worth getting for future updates.

From the product page:

This step-by-step guide is packed full of information and tells you all you need to know about caring for your bicycle. It covers everything from the basics of why maintenance matters and which tools you should use, to vital safety checks and more advanced maintenance tasks, even the fitting of accessories. Advice on how to adjust your bike to fit you, how to clean it efficiently, and how to keep it running in top condition, lets you get more enjoyment from your bicycle for longer, more safely, and with the sense of satisfaction that comes from knowing you can fix or prevent problems that may arise yourself – you could even save yourself a small fortune in repair bills. With information on maintenance scheduling, troubleshooting advice, and electric bicycles, this book is the perfect companion for every cyclist.

1 of 7 reviews are four stars and above.

So we have a bonus pick: Bike Repair.

NOTE: THIS APP IS NOT FREE--IT IS $2.99 It is also not compatible with the original Fire.

For the first time, I have an alternate app which is NOT free. I found this app when looking to see if there were any free alternatives and decided to include it for those who have coins or just realized they really need a bike maintenance app on their device. :D It looks really good. From the product page: Fixing your shifting problem, derailleur noises, brakes rubbing on the wheel, flat tire, broken chain, pedal removal, and other bike issues has never been easier. Bike Repair demystifies every basic repair and maintenance routine, and also includes some intermediate and advanced ones too. Bring these guides with you wherever you and your bicycle go.

Written in plain English, this series of 42 instruction guides on bike repair are perfect for casual and serious riders alike. Most of the repairs don't require any special tools. Repair instructions are straight to the point, without unnecessary text to distract users from the problem at hand. Bike Repair also addresses common aches and pains you may have while on the bike, giving tips on how to alleviate common issues like knee pain. Spare yourself the repair bill at your local bike shop--take bike repairs into your own hands with this informative and practical mobile app by Atomic Softwares.
